National Museum of Ukrainian Literature is the main museum of that kind in our country. The development of Ukrainian literature from the 11th century to the present day can be studied through the museum exhibits. There are about 5 thousand exhibits in the museum collection including some unique printed books. For example you can see the first Slavic printed book called "Apostol". It was printed by Ivan Fedorov. There are manuscripts, incunabula and lifetime editions as well as personal belongings of the Ukrainian writers, photographs and works of fine and decorative art in the museum. Totally there are over 80 thousand exhibits in the museum's collection.

The museum is located in the historical and architectural monument of the late 19th century. That is the main building of the former Pavel Galagan’s Collegium. In 1870 it was constructed by local architect Alexander Schille. The former Pavel Galagan’s Collegium was an elite school in Kiev. The interior of Collegium Library was designed by Italian craftsmen. It has been preserved almost completely. There the great Ukrainian writer Ivan Franko worked during his visits to Kiev in 1885 and 1886. In May 1886 Ivan Franko got married to Olga Horuzhinska in the Collegium church of St. Paul. Today there is an exhibition hall there. 

There are literary meetings, cultural festivals, literary prizes awarding, new publications presentations, parties with writers, scientists and artists in the museum. You can visit the meetings of the contemporary literature club. There are literary and art studio, music room and Ethnology School in the museum.
